Play this slam
If West knows you have a singleton diamond it's very rarely going to be wrong to lead it in preference to an otherwise neutral-looking lead, regardless of his holding in Diamonds...
Missing alert
@Michael: Why would north think 2 is a limit raise in clubs given that 1 is strong and artificial? I don't think anyone in this world plays it that way!

GIB, Schmib
Yes please do, it would also be very interesting to give the hand to the current crop of bridge playing software and see the results.
Erroneous call
Out of interest, if declarer had instead said "Ruff with the King", would he be obliged to play one of the Kings...?"
